(NOTE: This post was edited in August 2018 to reflect the fact that, from September 2018, the Drop-In changes from weekly to twice-a-month; upcoming dates are set out at the end of this article).
St James’ Church Drop-In started in 2014, as a welcoming place to come for a tea / coffee and a chat.
It is open two Wednesday afternoons a month from 2.00pm (suggested donation: £1.00).
Tables are arranged so you can sit in a group and enjoy one another’s company. There is no rush and the atmosphere is warm and friendly.
A selection of delicious home bakes is offered for you to help yourself – and tea or coffee is served at your table.
All ages are made welcome.
Young children sometimes come with mum or in a family group. Grandparents often bring grandchildren during the holidays. Some people come together, but others come on their own and soon make friends. No one is left to sit by themselves.
Some people come regularly and others pop in as and when they feel like having company.
You may come as a stranger but you will leave as a friend.
Why not give the drop-in a try?
If we haven’t seen you for a while, you will be sure of a warm welcome back.
Helpers are welcome too.
Anyone who would like to help at the Wednesday Drop-In or provide home bakes, please speak to Rosemary or Elfriede. We work from a rota, so a constant commitment is not necessary.
If you have any questions at all, feel free to get in touch with us via this website.
